Sometimes I see people set up to register voters in front of stores, in parks, or at events. What's that all about?
Every election season, organizations such as the League of Women Voters, set up tables outside of stores, in parks, or at events, providing voter registration forms. Yes, you can register to vote through them.
Please note--and this is important: You are not a voter until your application is approved by the Registrar of Voters. You should receive a confirmation within 3 weeks, verifying that you are a registered voter. If you do not receive such a notice, contact the Registrar in your municipality.
Make sure if you are registering in this sort of situation that your registration application is being returned to the Registrars Office in the town you reside in. For example, if you live in Fairfield and need to register, and find a convenient voter-registration opportunity in a park in Ridgefield, ask where those collecting the applications will take them afterwards. If the answer is the Ridgefield Registrar of Voters, you should take the form, fill it out, and mail it in an envelope to your own Registrar of Voters office.
